Hi,
I am having good 7+ years in J2EE (continuous), but for last 7 months due to unexpected circumstances, I am not working.
I worked last 5 yrs with IBM GBS (originally India), of which last 3 yrs with IBM Canada.

I have PR of canada now and came back to India... due to some personal pending things...

now I got this 7 months GAP, for last 1 months I am preparing for the interview...

so Folks what you feel Should I show the GAP or I can put some project I did earlier and get experience letter from my friend's company.(they will back reference check also)

I know Honesty matters but if GAP is definitely going to affect my shortlisting of my CV in companies ... then Its better to show some experience as I have enough industry knowledge to cover up.

I am planning to move back to Canada soon

Your honest and most important practical (might not be ethical) inputs will be appreciated ...

so does it matters in India/Candian companies with 7 yrs of exp.

Honest question - Did you seriously expect someone in this forum would post a reply encouraging you to cheat ?

When you decide to cheat, you are proposing to gain an unfair advantage over the rest of us that are clean. You also robbed someone else of a job opportunity when they had valid experience. I dont see how any discussion on this topic will help you in your decision. Nothing constructive can come from this thread either. I'm locking it.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
